Ivo van Hove’s production and stage adaptation of the film All About Eve is trademark van Hove and that is a good and bad thing.
Love London Love Culture’s Kirsty Herrington paid a visit to the Noel Coward Theatre to see Ivo van Hove’s production of All About Eve, based on the Oscar-winning film.
Fascinating All About Eve is, engaging perhaps not always. But anyone hoping for the same level of emotional payoff that Anderson’s other stage roles have demonstrated will likely end up frustrated with Eve.
Ivo van Hove’s take on All About Eve ticks all my boxes at the Noël Coward Theatre, great work from Gillian Anderson, Lily James and a stellar Monica Dolan.
This All About Eve is something quite different, same story deliberately new frame with staging that pushes at the boundaries of theatre and film.
Full casting has been announced for the world premiere of Ivo van Hove’s stage production of the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film All About Eve as West End rehearsals commence.
Further casting has been announced for the world premiere of Ivo van Hove’s stage production of the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film All About Eve.
Gillian Anderson and Lily James will star in a strictly limited run of Joseph L Mankiewicz’s All About Eve at the Noël Coward Theatre, adapted from the 1950 classic movie and directed for the stage by Olivier and Tony Award winner Ivo van Hove, playing from 2 February to 11 May 2019 (press night is 12 February).
If you are looking for a feel-good film to take at face value and a good unashamed sing-along – Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again fits that bill. There are also many laugh-out-loud moments and you might spot one or two members of Abba, keep your eyes peeled.
I was lucky enough to see an early screening of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again last week and I thought it was fricking fantastic.
